Rare View of 'air-freighted' F-5E FM-2217 (in standard Silver paint scheme) on delivery to Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) Base Butterworth in 1981. The 'knocked-down' Tiger was flown to Butterworth in USAF C-5A 68-0214 (open cargo door visible at top right). FM-2217 (plus other F-5s) was assembled by Northrop personnel, and test flown before hand-over to the RMAF. Low res photo. Apologies for the quality of this 28 year old photo.
